Are you in favour of putting a STOP to destruction of sugar estate land to billionaires, of stopping the concreting over of good agricultural land with luxury villas and malls?Wouldn’t you prefer politics that channel sugar estates into food production rather than cane production with no future? Are you in favour of each sugar estate setting up factories for bio-food preservation and processing? If you are, then  you should vote for LALIT?


Are you in favour of stopping State subsidies for cane and sugar as the price of sugar plummets? Wouldn’t you prefer to see State subsidies go into building a new bio food production sector for food security on the one hand, and for export to provide foreign currency, on the other? That is another reason you should vote for LALIT.
